ABERDEEN NOW PROVIDING RESIDENTS WITH LATEST
TOWNSHIP NEWS AND INFORMATION VIA E-MAIL ALERTS
ABERDEEN TOWNSHIP (11/5/08) –In the first of a series of planned improvements to Aberdeen Township’s communications tools, residents and businesses can now receive the latest township news and informational bulletins via ‘Web News’ e-mail alerts.
Under the “Opt-In”-style program, users must subscribe to receive e-mail alerts and they can change or delete their information at any time. If the e-mail address changes, they must re-register to continue receiving the Web News. Every e-mail notice sent out contains a link at the bottom for users to manage their information. The Township’s list is private and will not be sold or shared with any entity. Accordingly, users will never receive junk e-mail as a result of registering for the Aberdeen Web News e-mail list.
Registration can be completed by clicking on the “Register for Web News”. From there, users will need to fill out an online form with their e-mail address, name, and home address.
The introduction of Web News is the latest high tech initiative introduced by Aberdeen Township to keep residents fully informed about goings on around town. Late last year, Aberdeen contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc., of Ormond Beach, Fla., for its “CodeRED” high-speed telephone emergency notification services. The system gives township officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas or the entire township at a rate of up to 1,000 calls per minute. Web News and CodeRed are joined by the township’s award-winning newsletter Aberdeen Update as informational resources for residents and businesses.
“This new Web News service enables all Township departments to disseminate a wide variety of news and information in a timely and efficient manner,” said Township Manager Joseph Criscuolo. “It also represents the first in a series of steps we will be taking in the months ahead to make our website and other communications tools more responsive to the needs of our residents and businesses.”
